Khaleef's audition was not televised, but he auditioned in Los Angeles.
Khaleef was shown in a group with R.J Helton visibly forgetting his lyrics. Despite this, every member of his group, including him, advanced. He was also shown in the final part of Hollywood Round singing "Daydream Believer" by The Monkees. He managed to make the Top 30.
Khaleef sang "My Cherie Amour" by Stevie Wonder. He did not receive enough votes to make the Top 10, eliminating him from the competition.
